Special Holiday Gifts Ideas for Teachers
Educators form the minds of tomorrow. Teaching a class, of sometimes more than 40 students, can be exhausting. Not only should they prepare lessons and work long after hours, they should also be able to manage many different personalities and behavioral types.
For this reason, teachers go through quite a lot of stress. It has been said that they have a very ungrateful job. Learn more about what it really is like being a teacher here: https://www.collegexpress.com/interests/education/articles/what-life-teacher/what-being-teacher-really/.
Because they are such a vital part in our children’s education and growth, it is a special sentiment to say ‘thank you’ with a gift. Here are a few ideas you can give them to show your appreciation:
- Snacks and Treats
Everyone loves eating and there’s no better time of year to munch down on some delicious treats than during the holidays. Create a delicious basket filled with loads of candy and chocolate goods. If you want to make it extra special, add a few homemade biscuits and cookies.
- Gift Cards
If you’re not quite sure what to get your teacher, then you can consider purchasing a gift card from a stationery shop. Don’t be limited to stationery, teachers love many other things as well. What about an app store voucher or a gift card to their favorite online store? No matter the amount you put on the card, your teacher will love the gesture.
- Holiday-specific Gifts
Depending on the holiday season you can get them something that fits suit. When it’s Christmas, get them a pair of fuzzy winter socks and mittens or even a long Christmas-themed scarf. There are many other holiday gifts for teachers customized to fit the holiday season.
- Coffee Mug
It might sound like a cliché gift, but teachers can never have enough coffee mugs. Funky mugs with funny prints on them are what teachers live for. They usually keep these mugs in their communal teacher’s lounge where it usually gets stolen or misplaced. So, gifting them with a customized mug can be quite the solution.
- Hand Sanitizers and Hand Lotion
Teachers are prone to contracting colds and flu from their students. Ensure your teacher stays safe by gifting them with a high-quality anti-bacterial hand sanitizer.
Don’t forget the hand lotion. This will keep their hands soft and healthy after a long day’s work.
- Bookstore Gift Card
A similar trait between teachers is that they love reading. A simple voucher from an online bookstore can mean the world to an educator. Reading a novel over is a luxury they don’t typically have during school season. Now, they can enjoy a relaxing day while reading their favorite book.
- Personalized Card or Collage
Teachers love looking back at special moments they have shared with students. This is because students grow up and leave school, but their memory remains with their educators.
Come together as a classroom and create a special memory collage board. Add photos of activities you have shared together and perhaps even a few mementos. Add thoughtful messages and stickers too. No gift is ever perfect without a beautiful handwritten card attached to it. Go here for unique ideas and inspiration on handmade cards.
- Red Wine
After hours, educators enjoy a bottle of wine or whisky (or even brandy). Ask your parents to help you choose a good bottle of wine to ensure your teacher sits back and relax this holiday.
Are your teacher’s drawers always a mess? Then a drawer organizer might just be the answer. There are loads of containers and organizers available to help your educator keep their stationery and documents in order.
- Documents Bag
Educators are always seen carrying heaps of books, files, folders, and documents around. Make life easier by gifting them with a large book bag. A spacious bag will help them carry everything home at the end of the day.
Honoring your teacher is important, they put in a lot of effort that you sometimes don’t even see. Your child’s teacher deserves a break after teaching active, and sometimes naughty, students for a semester. Gift them with any of our unique ideas and see how they sparkle.
